The best tool you can probably have on hand is a glue gun.  They come in handy for everything.  My girlfriend used a hot glue gun to put the bolts into the base.  The glue not only filled in the empty space in the hole but definitely secured the bolts tightly.

In case I haven't mentioned, the candle holders are 9 3/8" bolts.  There are eight 3" bolts and one 4" bolt that goes in the center.  Each one is then capped with a 3/8" hex nut that is threaded on and then glued in place.  She glued the 9 bolts in place and then the hex nuts.

That's pretty much it!  If you follow these instructions you'll have a complete menorah in no time.  I think the entire project took less than an hour.
